I utilize this path to get from my home in Canton to Hines Drive where I can ride on the street. It's a little loud at spots because it passes close to the expressway and the path isn't very smooth north of M-14, but it's a good path. Also, beware the crossing at Michigan Ave. It's particularly difficult (annoying).
This seems like a reasonably nice trail, but I ended up riding far less of it than I had originally planned. The foot traffic was so heavy, it lowered my typical average speed my about 2 mph. I felt like I couldn't get into any rhythm because I kept having to slow down. Also, the are long stretches of the trail that are in heavy shadows and the condition of the path is only fair, so it's hard to see potential danger spots. Probably fine for recreational rides on a mountain bike, but not for a training ride on a road bike... not that paths are the best places for any type of speed rides anyway.
Did u know the highway divide yellow lines were conceived by The late Me Hines. We owe so much to his vision. As motorists, bicyclist and pedestrians all benefit from his wisdom. This is one of the most challenging ones around the tri-county trails. I am talking for myself ofcourse. The climb from 7 mile to Northville recreation parking lot is quite a burner. Do that and you are satisfied. As always, if you see me around say hi.
I started in Jonesville. The trail was littered with trash, including car parts from the significant 4 lane road next to the trail. It was overgrown in parts and simply was in terrible shape. I got a flat at about mile out and walked back. I was confident that if I changed the tube that there was enough litter on the trail that riding would soon result in another flat.
Didn’t realize this was so close To the freeway.
Park at the Black Swamp Preserve just a bit south of the north terminus.
The trail is nice and well maintained. For variety on the return north from North Baltimore, we road some of the parallel county roads. They're smooth and with virtually no vehicle traffic on a Tuesday morning.
Parked at Oak Openings on SR64. Rode East about 9.5 miles on North Fork. Took the connector trail to the Fallen Timbers Monument. Should have followed the sign that said “To Battlefield”. Missed it and had to turn left at mall entrance. Rode across SR24 bridge to the monument, then down a short paved hill trail and over to the Side Cut Metropark. Turned around and rode through the mall parking lot to a Subway in the back by the movie theaters. Found the unofficial shortcut just to the right of the theatres. Saved about a mile of riding back to the Connector Trail. Rode about 10 miles on the South Fork to Fulton-Lucas Rd. Rode about 5.5 miles North on the road. Very little traffic. A Friday night about 7PM and not a single car passed us. A right turn on the North Fork and about a mile back to the truck.
Now I know how the Cannonball got it’s name. Both trails were straight as an arrow. Nicely paved the whole way. Glad we rode it clockwise. South trail seemed to have more trees on the North side, so heading West at 7PM we had some nice shade.
I prefer a trail with some turns, but this was nice to do 32 miles with no backtracking. Thx for the nice trails.....Bikin-Mike - Aug 2020
A nice stretch to ride. Very loud riding just a few yards from traffic. Some of the trail diverts away from traffic and just behind neighborhood homes and shade trees and back again. Going North from the Canton area will give you the chance to detour onto the Hines Park area. Following the trail south from Canton you can detour onto the Metro Park trail system, clean quiet and places to rest.
Bikers should get an early start! Heavy foot traffic due to runners and walkers enjoying the trail. Clean but overgrown foliage in areas causing the trail to narrow forcing walkers into the weeds when trying to pass on bikes. Very few if any restrooms along the path, outhouse style. A few new benches. A local lake side picnic area very busy and congested but clean. Parking best in the early morning!!
The path is smooth wide and relatively flat, we enjoy biking thru the woods and love the scenery on this route. We tend to go back and forth a few times since it’s just shy of 2 miles total. The view and bridges are smooth and wide with lots of nature surrounding the path. We love it so much that the only thing we wish is that it was longer, but we just turn around at the end and follow back thru again ;) You do pay to park at the gardens but there is parking across herded road at a park for free.
Rode this trail for the first time out and back from ITC Park yesterday evening. It’s an enjoyable, nicely paved trail except for the intersection at Garfield in which you need to travel the dirt road to the east several hundred feet to pick up the trail again. (This would be difficult to manage with a stroller or small children on bikes with training wheels.). It wasn’t terribly busy for a weekday evening, but I ran into several people who don’t know trail etiquette. (People walking toward me on the right side of the trail, bikers going WAY too fast not announcing themselves, dogs off the leash...the usual issues.) Parking was OK at the park, but could be an issue if and when all the soccer and baseball teams get more active again. It’s a great trail for anyone looking for a relaxing scenic outing.
Nice ride includes multiple parks.
